Hi Guys, I'm a terrible introvert. I live with my partner and her two kids in a small inner city house. We have small living area, a kitchen and our bedrooms and thats about it. With various ups and downs I have more or less adjusted to life with step kids and lack of personal space, peace and quiet and so on.
The latest chapter sees the eldest SD(18) with a boyfriend who has moved in half the week(the other half she stay at his house). They are nice kids and no trouble but I am now stressed out having to share tiny house with another teenager who is hard to relate to. I often come home and they are watching TV in the living room so I am more or less forced to "hide" in the bedroom, often with my partner. They also cook meals in the kitchen so again, I retreat to the bedroom for some peace and quiet.
I know this doesnt sound like too much to bear but I am finding it very stressful and am getting angry about not being able to relax where I live, pay bills etc.
I think the main problem is lack of space, and my anti-social tendencies of course!
Can other relate?
